    The real pisser is if you get 5 plus the bonus, as thatís exactly the same odds as actually winning the thing
    Um, no? You get an extra (let's call it 'bonus') ball to get the six numbers up in.

    # JACKPOT (matching all six numbers): 1 in 14 million
    # FIVE PLUS THE BONUS: 1 in 2.3 million
    # FIVE: 1 in 55,000
    # FOUR: 1 in 1,000
    # THREE: 1 in 57

    (If the site I nicked that off is correct)

    Edit - Looking at that, how can the probability of getting all 6, or 5 and the bonus be different ? Surely they would be identically likely wouldn't they ? Since they're both picking 6 random numbers, drawing 7, and having 6 of them come up ?

    It isn't is it.
    Jackpot you must get the 1st 6 numbers
    5+bonus is any 5 of the 1st 6 and then its effectively a 2nd chance to match your last number with the bonus ball.
    Hope that clears up your statistics problem.

    If that's true, then that's really tragic. You have my sympathies.

    Congratulations prawnking.

    I've never even won so much as a tenner on the lottery.

    Is anyone else, like me, absolutely gutted every week when they don't win 14million?

    Yeah, I'm gutted every week I don't win 14 million. Sometimes it's only 10 million.

    *bump*

    Not quite the same, but won on a scratch card yesterday. What was odd about it though was every line won.

    You know where it says "Win up to 8 times!" I've always thought that they putit there for statistcal probaibilty advertising sort of thing. But all 8 lines won on my card. 5x£2 and 3x£4.

    Not bad.

    Wasn't there some guy who claimed to have won the lottery (in some country) 50 times to explain his mystery income? Perhaps I dreamed it.
